I am a newbie to the GalCiv world and Crusade is what I have.
This all sounds really great in theory , but I have not been getting any arable land tiles.
I attempted to build a Food Distribution Center on all of my planets, but with no food to distribute, oh well.
I gave up as I started to lose all my planets.
I changed to the Yor just because they do not need food!
The Yor were getting a bunch of farms on ever planet? WOW!
Is this a negative logic bug? i.e.) Synthetic's get farms and Organics get none?
I would have to say that no farms and no food seems like a major bug to me?
A) Make food a trade item.
Give Organics a Green House Achievement (one per planet)?
They were very successful at preventing surplus food!
